Question about Kia Rondo

1 Answer

Vacuum leak My daughter has a 2007 Kia Rondo. She tells me the cruise control doesn't always work, the heater controls don't always work and the engine sometimes dies when she comes to a stop (idle?). Problem is sporadic. Aren't all these controlled by vacuum and could the cause be a leak?

SOURCE: cruise control stop working can someone tell me how to fix myself

If all the brake lights are out it is likely your stop lamp switch is bad, it controls lights and cruse, and also supplies input to ecm/tcm. The old ones would just pop apart, you can put them back together but to replace the switch it is only 20-30 bucks. Try that.

SOURCE: My cruise control doesn't work??...any

jnjkingbird, It sounds like this problem is the clock spring as I don't believe that the horn and the cruise control would share a fuse. However, they do share a circuit in the clock-spring. You can check for power at each unit (horn and the cruise control) which would confirm this. Check each fuse as well. Good luck with this.

My cruise control on my 2001 Kia Sportage stopped working.


Check your repair manual where the vacuum hoses for the cruise controls are (engine bay). Maybe one of the hoses came off or has a leak.

When I turn on cruise control the light turns on but doesn't keep speed


Tera,

The light tells you that the electrics to the light are working - but cruise control in many cars relies on vacuum hoses and other mechanical and electro-mechanical components to work.

Additionally, if you have a brake or clutch issue - sensor in those sub-assembly circuits would automatically disengage the cruise control speed setting - but could leave the cruise indicator on.

How do I replace a brake light switch on my 2007 kia rondo?


It's located on the brake pedal. you'll need a 14mm wrench. There are 2 14mm nuts that sandwich the switch to the bracket. take the bottom nut off and the switch will come off. Install reverse of removal but you need to adjust the switch depth once its on the bracket. then snug the bottom nut and plug in the switch.

The cruise control in my 1989 305 v-8 pontiac firebird doesn't stay engaged. it will hold cruise , but after a few miles , it disengages.


The older vehicles used vacuum to control the Cruise. Check for a leak in the vacuum system. Using a can of starting fluid, spray the vacuum lines and fittings lightly. If the engine revs up after a spray, it'e most likely the leak.

Cruise control light comes on but will not set. as soon as 80km is reached light goes out and will not come on again untill ignition is switched off. Brake lights all working fine. 2009 Kia Sportage...


Well Im hoping that by telling you to check your cruise control wiring and vacuum routing for broken, unplugged wires or vacuum hoses you just might find that a simple vacuum line is in need of attention. good luck

Cruise control will not work. Lght comes on but


a vacuum leak is possible

Vacuum leak is most likely it. There is a vacuum line that runs under your batter tray. Most of the time it breaks and causes your cruise control to stop working and when you accelerate your heater will pop on and off. You can buy a new one from the dealer for like $3 bucks. Replacing this takes about 20minutes.
Its crazy how one simple thing can mess up a whole lot of stuff.
Good Luck.
